This video is part of the invited lecture held at SCAD (Savannah School of architecture and design) in April 2012. I hope you find it useful.
depending of my poor english ,I don't understand very well the audio of the video but I have problems
in this steps with both "Panel Custom 2D and 3D variable" :
1-at min 25,10
2- at min. 32,41
Looks like the problem step was the paneling with "mean" 2d & 3d for custom paneling.
Did you try to repeat the model?
Here are the steps for 2D mean variable paneling:
1- Run "ptPanelGridCustomVariable" command
2- Select a paneling points grid
3- Select base surface (optional). Press Enter if there is none
4- Set options: ( Base_u=0 Base_v=0 Shift_u=1 Shift_v=1 PatternMethod=Mean DistributionMethod=CurveAttractors PullCurves=Yes Group=Yes Name=PT00 )
5- Select attractor curves
6- Select start pattern curves
7- Select bounding objects (optional). Press Enter to use the pattern bounding box
8- Select end pattern curves
9- Select bounding objects (optional). Press Enter to use the pattern bounding box
Same thing is done with the 3d variable using "ptPanel3DCustomVariable" command MeanMesh distribution option.
Let me know if this helps and please post an example if you still have problem repeating the example.
Hi Rajaa...mmmhhh ...but... have you open my file? It work well for you? I always did these steps..but finally I had
the poor result of my file
...also in this video I don't understand this error
Sorry I missed your attachment.
I see what the problem is. Start and end curves structure need to be identical in number and direction. Control points are mapped between corresponding curves in start and end modules this is why it is safest to start with creating start module curves, then copy and edit for end module curves.
Here is an image to show how I did it. Also attached is the 3dm file.
Excuse me Rayaa but I don't know if I understand completely this:
"...Start and end curves structure need to be identical in number and direction. Control points are mapped between corresponding curves in start and end modules this is why it is safest to start with creating start module curves, then copy and edit for end module curves..."
...but anyway, if I made ( in the right) two new forms seing the order in the left...
after this no work ?!
Thankyou Rayaa :)! ... when in the comand I select the forms( start pattern and end pattern) en one action (window right-left)
that no work well...when i select the two interior arrows separatly it work well (?)
if your module has more than one curve, you need to select them one by one for the start module, and in the same order and one by one for the end module. So if you select the left curve of the start module first, then you need to also select the left curve of the end module first.
You cannot guarantee selection order with window selection and this is why you need to select one by one.
Hi ,another problem...similar to the video-tutorial of jewellry in the previous question ...why I don't see the green points and I have an error ? I picked " preview " in PTCrvAtts".
The sample uses older component. The new curve attractor component does not have surface. Please replace with the new one and see how it works. Thanks

-Paneling tools v2012- 08- 22( but I don't see an "about" in rhino's menus that confirm me this version...)
I always have this window and always pick "replace all" but...
ALso "skipe all" no help me..
